Seems like Galt gets abused when he makes is twice daily trips to the liquor store. I'm sure the clerk gets tired of seeing the old urine stained drunk stagger in & paying with the loose change he just begged on the street corner.
You seem to be an expert. Do you need bars on the windows where your liquor store is located?
Yeah

Not yet, but I can imagine what's going on there.
The Obamabots are trying to divert the attention to Snowden to prevent the attention from being focussed where it needs to be, on the government spying. The RINOs are helping them.
Is that close?
Your guesses are always close son.

The first accurate thing that has come out of your mouth.
By the way, out of curiosity, how old were you when you participated in your first conspiracy?
When was the last conspiracy you participated in?
Did you participate in a conspiracy today?
To engage in conspiracies is one of the most natural of human interactions. Everyone does it.
And, now, you want to convince some fool to believe something rediculous like there is some magic level of society or government where conspiracies become impossible.
You need to work on your ability to lie convincingly. Watch more of those Obama training videos.
You mean like how you and your brethren are claiming to go against the United States government?

Hmmm.... never son.

But it would appear not only are you in one, you're ilk are promoting it with vigor!

LISTEN TO OBAMAS CAMPAIGN TAPES FROM 2005 up this GOI is A BALDFACE LIAR President Obama’s defense of the very surveillance policies he campaigned against in 2008 “fails the laugh test on a number of levels”– including the legal presumption of innocence.“Where is the basis of ‘probable cause’ to proactively search the records of millions of Americans who have never engaged in any illegal activity let alone activity of a ‘terrorist’ nature?”“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin
“The larger issue is that the NSA and FBI are engaged in the surveillance of American citizens who have not engaged in any wrongdoing

Isn't it indicative how integration is no longer the message? As these black population centers grow and get louder, segregation has become more and more attractive to blacks but especially the politicians. Now, instead of jobs, they demand economic "justice", i.e. money for nothing. If they just get more justice, everything will be cool. They don't want jobs.

President Obama, who as a Senator campaigned against such practices as they were being engaged in by the Bush administration, is now defending them. When asked in 2007 if the president has Constitutional authority to conduct surveillance for national security purposes without judicial warrants, Senator Obama stated,“The Supreme Court has never held that the president has such powers.” Now, according to the President in defense of such measures, "My assessment and my team's assessment…was that they help us prevent terrorist attacks, and the modest encroachments on privacy that are involved…that on net was worth us doing." He went on to say, "When it comes to telephone calls, nobody is listening to your calls. That's not what this program is about…What the intelligence community is doing is looking at phone numbers and durations of calls – they're not looking at people's names and they're not looking at content."
What ever happened to the fundamental legal premise of presumption of innocence?”

I believe that more Americans would be outraged if this were a physical invasion of their privacy as opposed to a technological invasion. If the police were entering the homes of millions of Americans and taking photographs of their contents and video of their activities more people would be outraged. Remember the outrage when shortly after 9/11 then Attorney General John Ashcroft proposed using members of the US Postal Service to spy on American citizens? These actions are a clear violation of the intent of,“The right of the people to be secure… against unreasonable searches and seizures…”
“The best way to prevent terrorist attacks is to stop engaging in practices that contribute to the promotion and recruitment of 'terrorists' and validate the perception/reality of America as an imperialist interloper.”

NO wonder OBAMAIDOTS use bushes name all the time This is clearly an attempt by the “liberal” Obama administration to further the development of the National Security State (NSS), all under the pretext of the Bush era marketing strategy the “War on Terror.” Some will consider my use of the term NSS as an exaggeration or over-the-top. According to the Center for Media and Democracy, elements of the NSS are that the military exerts important influence over political, economic, as well as military affairs (Eisenhower’s “military industrial complex”). National Security States often maintain an appearance of democracy. However, ultimate power rests with the military or within a broader National Security Establishment. The military and related sectors wield substantial political and economic power. They do so in the context of an ideology which stresses that “freedom” and "development" are possible only when capital is concentrated in the hands of elites (the rise of the One-Percent). Finally, defending against external and/or internal enemies becomes a leading preoccupation of the state, a distorting factor in the economy, and a major source of national identity and purpose.
According to the President,“But my assessment... was that they (these programs) help us prevent terrorist attacks.”

President Obama’s National Security State is making American’s insecure.“Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates." Benjamin Franklin - 17 November 1737.

A call for strategic minds to unite
Monsanto and Big Ag have truly weaved a tangled web by placing themselves and their cohorts at the very epicenter of U.S. economic stability. It is obvious, therefore, that we need the world’s brightest and most creative minds to unite in an effort to free the U.S. from the financial stronghold they have on the economy.
Anti-GMO activists need to come up with a plan to offer the U.S. fiscal system long-term growth and sustainability – at the same time – providing solutions to world hunger issues to let Americans know that we are not at the mercy of GMO’s to feed the world.
Let’s begin by using our spending power
It has been announced by Amanda Irish, senior director of Target’s store brands, that it will boost its organic food selection by 25 percent by 2017. According to Irish, Target’s new brand of organic food is in response to American’s demand for healthy food options. Although, only 10 percent of overall grocery sales, Irish states that organic foods are growing at twice the rate of conventional groceries.
In effect, these numbers reflect an increased demand for non-GMO’s as well because organic food by definition is non-GMO.
So, to help shift the financial dependency our nation has on Big Ag, consumers need to first utilize their spending power and vote “No-GMO” with their dollar. We need to focus the economic trend toward non-GMO products and create awareness to lead our fellow Americans down a similar.
Like the EU, Japan and other countries refusing to purchase GMO products, Monsanto will be pressured to supply what is demanded or else run the risk of losing their market share.
Galt favors free market choice, but doubts that a majority of consumers will choose to pay significantly higher prices for "organic" foods.

Galt does not understand your objection to disease-resistant and pesticide-resistant seeds that allow farmers to increase crop yields.
Yeah
